Overview Once a software development project is completed at CapraTek, it is also important that there is a plan in place to have the system verified and validated to assure it is the right system and is developed correctly. The SDP needs to spell out how independent verification and validation is to be conducted. Software is rarely completely done at the end of a project. There may be bugs that are uncovered or additional criteria that must be implemented. Planning out a process for the maintenance of the software is crucial. A large part of the software maintenance is to preserve its integrity as changes are made. Any changes are needed to be logged and tracked. There needs to also be criteria put in place when certain software needs to be retired or migrated. In this assessment you will complete SDP Section 8, Validation and Verification, and Section 9, Maintenance Process. Preparation Review the CapraTek Overview found in the assessment Resources as needed. Save a new version of your SDP document using this assessment number and use it to complete the assessment. Directions Consider the CapraTek scenario and address the items below in Section 8 and Section 9 of the CapraTek SDP document: Create a plan for the independent verification and validation of software based upon your chosen Agile methodology per SWEBOK standards (should be one page or less). (SDP Section 8). Create an activity diagram demonstrating the software maintenance process. (SDP Section 9). Create a maintenance plan that specifies of how to maintain deployed software per SWEBOK standards (should be one page or less). (SDP Section 9). Save and submit your SDP.
